IMCCI program

As an artist myself believe me when I tell you that in the western countries no one cares about master degrees when exhibiting your work, so don’t sweat it, just stay away from toxic environments that could damage your creativity and self esteem, all bullies suffer inside so feel sad for them. Look for other programs in Taiwan in case you are still interested in getting a degree, there are good programs and real professors out there. I am really sorry for what happened to you. Move on and good luck. You have a lot of talent I know you will succeed.

Terrible Introduction to Asian Creative Industries

IMCCI program is a program offer by the ICDF, this institution offer scholarships mainly to Latin American countries, after a few months this program becomes a nightmare, courses are extremely mediocre, their project managers keep sending very disrespectful email to students, is like they think that because they give you a scholarship they have the right to psychologically abuse you, and that you don’t have the right to give an opinion, must of the professors are obsessed with talking bad about China, Which is ok for them , but the problem is that the program was suppose to be about art , since is in an art university. Shame on you!

Excellent and comprehensive program about arts and culture.

This program is offered by the Taipei National University of the Arts, one of the best in the field in Taiwan. It's an international program aimed mostly to international students, so all courses are taught in English and students come from all parts of the world, which makes classes and discussions about culture very enriching. The faculty has a very good level, with almost all professors having their PhDs in the USA and Europe. But what makes this program even more special is its curricula: very comprehensive but open enough to allow students (who come from many different backgrounds) to focus on the subject matters they are more interested in, whether it is performing arts, management, curatorialship, research, etc. And to make this program even more accessible to everyone, it offers full scholarships. Overall, I definitely recommend this program to every person interested in cultural and creative industries.

I would recommend to a friend!

Great Introduction to Asian Creative Industries

The multidisciplinary IMCCI program is a perfect introduction to cultural and creative projects currently being developed in Taiwan and Asia. The professors bring in their expertise in their subjects and their wisdom is reflected in their syllabus and extra curricular activities planned around their classes. The IMCCI program is fairly new, though. The program is steadily growing learning from the students as well. TNUA in itself is an institution that prides itself in respecting and honing the traditional and fine arts to represent Taiwan around the world. This can be seen in their successful education of international stars of dance, painting, music, and theatre in major cultural institutions around Europe, East Asia, SE Asia, and North America.

The program has a very wrong idea of what art and education should be, the classrooms are more about hatred against the Chinese government and not really about art. You can't under any circumstance contradict the Professors' point of view or you will be psychologically abused or bullied. A very expensive program in exchange of a very dictatorial, non art related education.
